Cigna to brokers: Stop selling individual plans on federal exchange

Cigna is telling brokers not to sell its health plans to individuals eligible for subsidies on the federal-run health insurance exchange, reported Insurance Networking News. The problem was triggered by a Cigna tool that lets brokers help consumers buy health plans. However, incorrect information provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has caused technical glitches in the tool. "As we iron that out, we are asking [brokers] to take a pause and not submit individuals until this issue is cleared up in November," Cigna spokesman Joe Mondy said. Cigna is working with CMS to resolve the glitch and hopes it will be cleared up by November. Article
